To Russia For Love

Hot on the heels of our lovely show at The Arcola, tomorrow I'm taking part in To Russia For Love, a fundraiser for Stonewall. I'm performing a wonderful scene from Turgenev's A Month In The Country with Ms Alys Torrance. Artistic Director Jen Lunn talks about the project in The Indy here.

The Story Project 5: Fame, Fear and Fables

And so to The Story Project at The Arcola. I'm in a play called The Boy Who Never Learned To Fly and we open on 19th October. I shall be cracking out a Lancashire accent which should be worth the ticket price alone. So if you see me walking down the street muttering 'Betty's hotpot' under my breath, that's why.

And a little bit later......

So, jumping forward a few months, Entertaining Angels was a really enjoyable tour (it really was. I'm not even pretending in a bid to make my life look better than yours). There were reviews and they are here (leftlion), here (the stage) and here (reviewsgate). I particularly like the one that says Judith Faultless is terrific as wife Mel. But that's just me.

The Travelling Plays

Hitting the Road - The Travelling Plays is the latest from Scene and Heard, a fabulous charity that works with the kids of Somerstown. I dramaturged a play exploring the relationship between a leech and an HP Sauce Bottle. It's one of twelve amazing plays that open tonight. Can't wait!

I'm pretty much making it up....

So, I've been brushing up my impro skills. Improv skills. Whatever. It's all fun and games. It really is. And, excitingly, it leads me to this - a couple of impro shows with Hoopla at The Miller, London Bridge on 6 March and 27 March 2013...... I love a gig I don't have to prepare for.

Nottingham you say? Well why not.

Well, excellent news, I've been cast in a new play. Entertaining Angels opens on 2 May so I'm heading to Nottingham for a couple of months. I'm really looking forward to it. Nottingham, brace yourself.

Gigging news

Exciting! Torrance and I are hitting the road again with some live stuff. It's been a while so I'm hoping I remember how to bellow and panic, two things central to my performance. We're kicking things off here: (brace yourself I'm about to add a link). 
So if you're free on 1 March......
